While it's nice to finally be able to own the series on dvd, for some unfathomable reason the dvd makers cropped it to 4:3 format, and didn't use the original widescreen format. If that bothers you, you'd be better off trying to get hold of a copy of the old, out of print dvd set.

The latest release of Andromeda besides being the last in the series gives me a sigh of relief...the HORRIBLE packaging that plagued earlier releases has been fixed! Not one of the discs was loose when it arrived; previously I would have 2-4 discs scratched and have to return one or more times to get a full set of readable discs.

Anyway I hope they release the older seasons in this new packaging (similar to how other tv shows are packaged with a disc insert).

I wonder if they'd consider selling us these cases for our existing boxed sets? I'd love to replace the cases for Andromeda, Lexx, Earth Final Conflict, and Outer Limits!

I hope other publishers hear about this fiasco and fix their releases as well (Futurama I'm talking about you grrr!)

I didn't see the series on TV.

Watching seasons 3, 4 & 5 in a row was a bit much, but it really highlighted how much the directors reused scenes. And I mean over and over and over, not just a few flashbacks. The stories were basically interesting, but the writing and story details were poorly thought out. I would have expected the final season to get a bit more money thrown at it so the series could go out with a bang rather than a whoosh. Too bad. The actors are good for the genre, but the characters often didn't exhibit the knowledge and personality that they established over the series. Goodbye Captain Dylan Hunt and crew. See you next time Kevin Sorbo and cast. Lobby for better writers next time.

The Best Season Ever May 13 2012
By Ready Writer - Published on Amazon.com

If there's only one season of Andromeda you ever watch, this should be it. Not only does it pull all the threads together of the past four seasons, but the fact that its like one long movie, cut up into twenty-two episodes you want to watch through without a break, only makes it that much better.
The ending is Epic, and well deserved for the dauntless crew of the Andromeda Ascendant and the irrascible Captain Dylan Hunt. My only regret, that this season wasn't twice as long because there was so much good action and adventure in it...every episode is first rate stellar entertainment. I highly recommend it to all fans, because, new to science fiction, or a sci-fi buff like myself, you're going to love every single jaw dropping, action packed minute of it.

It's Always Woth Watching Andromeda Sept. 27 2011
By Ângela - Published on Amazon.com

It may seem a paradox. I recommend it, but I'm really disappointed with the final season of Andromeda. At the beginning, everybody blaming Dylan for being in Seefra??? Beka was born a baby on earth and at the same time was abducted from Seefra as a five or seven year's old child??? Drago Museveni, according to Dylan in other season, created a race of great poets, scientists, etc. In season five, the great scientist Drago appears as an almost crazy guy, eager to create a race of wariors. And Beka was also the mother of all Nietzschean race??? Rhade changed a lot an then changed again and again. WHERE are the Vedrans? What's the explanation of the existence of the spirit of the abyss? It's fiction. I Know. But I'm still looking for it. In the last two episodes, there were many events and twists, including the destruction of earth and the abyss controling the nebula and the Nietzscheans. The Commonwealth was losing the war. Then Trance's sun defeats the abyss and the Commonwealth's fleet (or a few ships) appear. Rhade is among them and says that his family is safe and that he needs help because he is out of fuel. What happened??? Did the Nietzscheans disappear??? Dylan also says that he is finally home. Has Seefra already changed enough to become Tarn Vedra? And again, where are the Vedrans? On season two, according to the only Vedran I remember seeing in the entire series, they were watching Dylan and proud of him, although, for some unknown reason, not helping him. And who are these people they left in the nine Seefras during 300 hundred years? Why there were no post victory scenes in the last episode? The series ended abruptly. I have many more doubts, but, in spite of alll of them, I loved watching Andromeda and I'll miss it. I've seen many sci fi series, including the Strar Treks and Babylon 5 (that is great) and Andromeda is one of the best. Season five is worth seeing (you have fun) and the last episode is enjoyable. It 's problem is not what have been shown. It's what not have been shown, what not have been explained, connected. The explanations could have beeen crazy, but I think that if you watch an entire series, you deserve something more than what was presented. Anyway, like I said, I loved watching Andromeda, from the beginning to the end .
Overrated because we like the cast Jan. 28 2015
By Edward - Published on Amazon.com
The majority of the principle cast of Andromeda have that indefinable quality where they automatically inspire people to like them. However, that is not a good reason to automatically give a good rating to the project they are involved in. They majority are also good actors and actresses. These two qualities are the only positive qualities of this series.

Andromeda started with a fairly good concept and in the first two seasons there are a handful of good episodes, but by Season Five it degenerated into “Lexx” inspired idiocy (“Fire and Ice”) without any of Lexx's quirky charm. The only way this series could be worse is if it was photographed by amateurs on smartphone video. Some scenes use the “bobble-cam” so much they probably were shot on smartphones. It really is that bad.

The writing is the worst. Not only is there no consistency from episode to episode, but sometimes they contradict themselves from sentence to sentence. Nothing makes any sense. While the show started grounded in futuristic science, it devolved into ancient Greek mythology with mythical and magical beings. I will say that Harper's testimony at Dylan's trial in episode 4-11 (starting at 22:40) is perhaps the best technospeak ever done in a science fiction show.

The writing can accurately be described as atrocious. They use every single science fiction cliché ever written, such as “reverse polarity”, “weapons to full”, “we need more power”, “it's breaking apart”, “pull up!” and even, sorry as it is, “flux capacitor”. Absolutely ridiculous.

Most episodes follow three simple rules:

1) There will be at least one hand-to-hand combat scene, often for no reason at all.
2) Some unrecognizable bad guys are going to be killed just to watch them fall to the floor on an obvious stage set.
3) Dylan gets to kiss the pretty girls.

Now, lest you think I give all shows low ratings, note that I have given other science fiction shows four and five stars.
Worthy End to a Great Show. Aug. 25 2014

I recall watching season five back in the early 2000's, and to be honest, I hated this season because they were stuck and the story just didn't make sense. After watching it again, I'm going to have to change that opinion. The story makes more sense now on second watch, and the acting is quite good. The story is pretty good too.

This season is, for lack of a better word, non-linear. Essentially, this season is about the crew facing and overcoming their own individual frailties and getting back to the place where they can unite against the abyss. I really love Kevin Sorbo's character development in this season (compared to the past seasons).

If you were a fan of Andromeda, get it. If not, probably pass. If you want to get into Andromeda I'd recommend season 3, my overall favorite, due to the amazing screenwriting and acting by the cast and especially by Keith Hamilton Cobb.

Low Quality Sept. 22 2011
By PastorVor - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was very disapointed with this set. The Menu is half French half English and there are no extras.
But worst of all was the fact that the video is not 16x9 (it is 4:3) and there is no hi def sound. Only one sound option (besides the french option).
None of this is shown in the description.

This is not a "Box" set, but rather, it is 6 disks folded into a single DVD case with no printed material at all. No episode list. Nothing.

Season 5 starts out very strange and gets stranger. It has very little to do with the previous 4 seasons. Most notably is the loss of Lexa Doig as Andromeda.

These DVD's have the look of a home made set.
